resource video

Many authors are unaware of a key provision of the U.S. copyright law that lets them recapture their rights after thirty-five years. Section 203 of the Copyright allows authors a second bite of the apple: a right to terminate any assignment, license, or transfer of copyright (except works made for hire). In this webinar copyright attorney Ed Klaris and Authors Guild attorney Umair Kazi will discuss this important right that Congress built into copyright law and the formalities for getting your rights back. Panelists: Ed Klaris, Umair Kazi
